A fly in the ointment.

This a comment for this page on the website
I have this, the OS but not S version, which is optically identical. It's very sharp and the AF is accurate but I've found that the AF is not fast enough for runners coming at me, at least not fast enough for a high number of keepers, though it's fine for soccer etc. I also have the Sigma 300 EX F2.8 which is lighter and has much better autofocus and in practical tests is as sharp. So my advice to people is to not get this lens for running.. It's a good nature lens and for sports where people aren't running at you at speed...
